Rail employees continue work stoppages Wednesday

Last update: 23:32


ANA-MPA -- Rail services will continue to be disrupted on Wednesday and Thursday, as Hellenic Railways (OSE) and Proastiakos suburban railway employees enter the second of three days of stoppages, from 8:00 p.m. to midnight.

Several OSE itineraries that overlap the stoppages will be cancelled or re-routed as a result.

Travelers are advised to call OSE at 14511 or check the revised itineraries on the webpage www.trainose.gr.

Metro trains between Doukissis Plakentias station and Athens' international airport will run according to schedule.

On Tuesday, ships were docked at ports throughout the country due to a 24-hour nationwide 'warning" strike called by seamen in protest over a Merchant Marine Ministry omnibus bill for restructure of the sector, which is being introduced to the parliamentary plenary for debate. The strike ends Wednesday morning at 6:00 a.m.

Dockworkers' and merchant marine ministry employees' unions will be participating with work stoppages.

Panhellenic Seamen's Federation (PNO) sources told ANA-MPA that a new mobilisation has been scheduled for the May 1 Labor Day.

PNO has asked for withdrawal of the omnibus bill, which it considers is an attempt to overturn the institutional framework in place today (ship crew compositions, collective labor agreements also in sea-going vessels, and other demands).
